Ploërmel: founded in the 6th century by Saint-Armel, the city was prosperous in the Middle Ages becoming residence of the Dukes of Brittany. You can visit the church of Saint-Armel (15th and 16th century), the astronomical clock, the Carmelite cloister, the old town and its half-timbered houses.
Le Vieux Bourg: Originally, it was the first village of Taupont which controlled a ford on the river. The church of Saint-Golven and its Calvary have been inscribed in the historical monuments since 1925. Inside, the large altarpiece of the seventeenth century has blocked the river.
Loyat: this is the land of sorcerers. A fountain on the moor of Treguier testifies. Legend has it that the young people who were going to have fun at night could meet beautiful bewitchers and disappear forever.
The manor of Lézonnet: the former feudal manor (today private property) is located facing the lake to the duke. It also has a watchtower, an entrance and a domestic chapel
